The authors describe their experience of anastomotic aneurysm diagnosis and treatment. They are classed into two groups: slowly growing anastomotic aneurysms, which are the most common; and rapidly growing anastomotic aneurysms, which are more infrequent. A follow-up is proposed in order to detect this involvement early, in election. Urgent diagnostic timing is also proposed. Moreover an analysis is made of criteria to follow in their therapy and indications to surgical treatment. In the period from January 1988 to October 1992 we observed 413 patients and 876 anastomosis or arterial sutures in election, discovering 27 anastomotic aneurysms whereas in 6 cases we had patients who were affected with rapidly growing anastomotic aneurysms. These were urgently operated, whereas of the 27 patients with slowly growing anastomotic aneurysms, 22 were operated and in 5 cases we preferred to check them by a close follow-up.
